  3. Good insights, Buddha. (My first smile of the day and I thank you. Oh to have your brain.)

    “I agree, AY. Also something wrong with “skewering” Peeps, I think, but I can’t put my finger on it.”

    Might I suggest it’s a linguistic trap caused by slang and a homophone.

    “Skewering peeps” is a sadistic/cannibalistic double entendre.

    You can do it marshmallow critters all you like, but that kind of behavior in people toward people (peeps) usually gets one arrested and/or killed.

    Better to be in a Rotogravure than a rotorooter…

    I can’t get the link to post, so go to salon.com and search for the Toasted Peeps Brulee recipe.

    1.Skewer a Peep. The thing is, flat surfaces give you the best results, because they can heat and caramelize relatively evenly, which is why I like the bunnies. But a chick Peep’s head, for instance, is just going to burst into flames before the rest of the body gets hot enough. Which, granted, is kind of awesome to look at, but not so much to eat. So I prefer the flatter bunnies, and I go in with the skewer between the ears — so it looks like a Peep lollipop — to toast their wide bellies, and because this way I kill the Peep instantly. Er, ignore that.

    And the chicks do have great, flat bottoms, so I skewer them lengthwise, like so: (refer to link)

    3.Turn your flame on high.

    4.Start waving your Peep over the fire, letting the flames touch the surface of the sugar. After a couple of seconds, take a look: What you want, as much as possible, is an even, light brown caramel. Now, realistically, that’s not going to happen. The edges are probably going to get darker, the middle might not brown at all, and, if it’s taking too long and you’re starting to cook the Peep, it will start to puff up and deform. It’s all OK, just know that your bunnies are going to start looking like spacemen with oversize helmets and the chicks are going to start looking like puffy sneakers from the ’80s. Just keep waving the Peep over the flame, check on it every two seconds or so, and make sure a few things happen: you get some caramelized browning, the sugar on the parts that don’t brown at least turns glassy-looking, and you DON’T BURN IT. Blow out any flames right away, and if it’s starting to get dark brown, stop, unless you really like the bitter taste of char. If you’re working with bunnies, flip and caramelize the other side. If you’re using chicks, just kind of give the sides a perfunctory go at it, but pretty much the best stuff happens on the bottom.

    Okay. Maybe it’s just me. They’re just Peeps, but is nothing sacred? 🙂

  7. Gingerbaker,

    And I though I was a repository for odd bits of knowledge.

    But I will say that the “bunny method” is a bit further than I’m willing to go to “go green”.

  8. “There is just something wrong about the pooping candy animals. I have not figured it out but I am sure there is something wrong…..”

    Not necessarily inappropriate for bunnies, though. They are coprophagous, making two distinct types of pellets. One type for elimination, one for ummmm…’recycling’! 😀

  9. “The favorite for the kids this year are chick’s that walk and lay jelly beans.”

    *************

    I totally agree. Those clergy jelly beans are way too salty and who knows where they’ve been. Here’s my favorite “chicks’ that walk”: 🙂

  11. The Easter Bunny also sings his greetings of the day:
